The electrifying, often harrowing memoir of a highly decorated DEA agent who targeted the world’s most notorious narco-terrorists through the “dark art” of undercover operations.

Edward Follis bought eightballs of coke in a red Corvette.

He negotiated multimillion-dollar deals onboard private King Airs.

He developed covert relationships with men who were not only international drug traffickers but—in some cases—operatives for Al Qaeda, Hezbollah, Hamas, the Shan United Army, or the Mexican Federation of cartels.

He was a master at the dark art of going undercover.

And this is his story…

Spanning five continents and filled with harrowing stories about the world’s most ruthless drug lords and terrorist networks, The Dark Art is an incredible first hand account of Edward Follis’s twenty-seven-year undercover career in the DEA—from doing street-level busts evocative of Miami Vice to using high-resolution-optics surveillance and classified cutting-edge technology to bring down narco-terror kingpins. It also closely examines how, from the early 1990s to today, the DEA underwent its own radical transformation, shifting its focus from local dealers of coke and weed to the billionaire financiers of worldwide terrorism.

Every word is true, and every story is documented. A globe-hopping nonfiction thriller, The Dark Art is a page-turning memoir that will electrify you from page one.
